The Austrian Christian Stangl is the new star of the international scene of extreme mountaineering. His special discipline is Sky running – climbing mountains as fast as possible and without any technical support like oxygen or stored supplies. His current aim is the ascent of the “Seven Summits” (the highest mountains of all continents) in a new minimum record time. After unbelievable records at Mount Everest and Aconcagua, Stangl ventures an expedition to the 4,884 meter high Carstensz Pyramid in West Papua in March 2007. The Carstensz Pyramid is the highest mountain of Australia and Oceania. Christian crosses the “green hell” of Papua under extremely difficult climatic and logistic conditions. Despite of the exhausting march he sets up an unbelievable new record time of 48 minutes at the ascent of the Carstensz Pyramid.
